Parents and eSafety
Parents, we feel you should know how we are tackling the problem of e-safety at the college and we also wish to offer you a one stop area of the website where you can find out lots of information about e-safety so you can understand the issues and keep up with the technology yourselves. The key to being safe on the internet is education and discussion so please in your own time look through the e-safety section of our website, find out the advantages and dangers of using the internet so you can begin to feel confident that you and your family are using the internet safely and securely.
Over the course of this academic year, we will be offering Parent Information Sessions to support you in supporting your child when using the Internet and to increase your understanding of e-safety. Please look for further information in newsletters and on the website.
